We stayed at the Fiddler's Creek condo listed above for the months of February and March, 2012. Fiddler's Creek is an upscale condo development in South Naples. It is three miles from the Marco Island bridge and 25 minutes to downtown 5th Ave. The grounds are exquisite and are set up such that there are various small communities within the larger overall community. This condo is located in one of the closest ones to the main pool/spa/restaurant area. Every community has it's own pool but there is a larger resort type pool, which you have the option of belonging to. The condo itself is very spacious with lovely, new furniture in every room. The kitchen is fully equipped to be able to cook anything and the linens are provided, along with beach towels and beach chairs. There are three eating areas, kitchen, dining room and lanai, which gives plenty of options. The sun is on the lanai in the morning, which is wonderful to sit and have coffee on and then it is very comfortable to eat there in the early evening when the sun is not shining directly on it. We liked having the office, equipped with wireless Internet and printer, which gave us the ability to keep on top of everything that we needed to while we were away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Fiddler's and are looking forward to our time there next year also.
